How to Donate

Why do we have the Prisk Foundation?

In 2007, when Long Beach Unified School District began to experience drastic budget cuts, parents created the Prisk Foundation to maintain the teachers and teaching assistants in the Science and Computer Labs at Prisk. This financial support of our school has continued ever since. To this day, the Prisk Foundation remains dedicated to supporting our students by raising the funds necessary to meet the growing financial needs to staff our school and to give our young scholars the superior education they deserve.

Why do I write my checks to LBEF?

The Prisk Foundation operates under the 501(c)(3) non-profit status of the Long Beach Education Foundation (LBEF), which raises money to support education. LBEF allows schools to have their own accounts, which are maintained by the LBEF. Every dollar raised by the Prisk Foundation is deposited into an LBEF account earmarked specifically for Prisk and is used exclusively at Prisk.

The Prisk Foundation gratefully accepts donations on behalf of William F. Prisk Elementary School. Your generous donations will help further our children’s education and help provide much needed resources for the school. There are two ways to make a donation:

Donating at Prisk:

Look for the Foundation envelopes on the bulletin board by the school office (you may use any envelope). Checks should be made payable to the “Long Beach Education Foundation”.

All donations are tax-deductible. The Foundation is part of the Long Beach Educational Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation. The LBEF is a California Public Benefit Corporation.  All funds raised by the Prisk Foundation are for the exclusive use of Prisk Elementary.
